ENIGMA OF THE UNSCHEDULED PASSENGER is a retelling of a segment of "Four Star Playhouse" called "The Man on the Train" which was telecast 15 Jan. 1953 a year prior to the magazine date. The role of Lucinda Dell is played by David Niven as a London businessman who meets a stranger on the train. Also, Daniel Cohen authored "Railway Ghosts and Highway Horrors" which also includes this story, so says IMDB. This episode is also on the DVD collection "Four Star Playhouse, Volume One."
